Dear Lauren,

I am writing on behalf of the family of E. a one-year-old child with recurrent atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor, a form of brain cancer that is life limiting. E.'s treatment included two brain surgeries that failed to try and stop the spread of the disease.  E.'s parents have made the loving decision to care for E. at home with the support of hospice.

E. lives with his parents and extended family in New Jersey.  Prior to E.'s diagnosis Mr. M. was working full-time to support his family.  Over the past month he has decided to work part-time so he can spend more time with E.  As a result, the family is struggling financially.

I am requesting financial assistance in the amount of $..... to cover the cost of Mr. M.'s cell phone bill.  Mr. M. uses the cell phone as the primary phone to remain in contact with hospice staff and E.'s medical team at CHOP.

Thank you in advance for your support.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact me directly.
